Sea conditions: see above
Weather: snow drifting, very strong wind, cold
Joined by: Mertz as an observer only
Topics of conversation:

Mabel's first proper snow - she was very excited and as DK couldn't drive up to the cliff field car park because of the snow drifts she had to be put on the lead to walk to the beach as he was afraid he might lose her in the snow because she is so tiny. Luna and Willow absolutely love the snow too and had been going mad all the way there, chasing each other and tearing across the dunes. Willow had jumped over one dune only to land in a drift so deep that she disappeared, she was rather embarrassed as she tunnelled out and shook herself down.
We decided that we would have to go in, even though it was rough as we'd battled our way thus far, but it wasn't safe to try to swim out. Mertz had his phone with him, so took some pictures. I was rather alarmed and said that I didn't want him putting my arse on Facebook, DK's response was "but can he put your face on Arsebook?" Here are some of the shots he took.

Over the dunes
Warmer in than out

A bit rough

Getting dressed again isn't easy
